As you may have noticed, I’m writing about family vehicles this year. I have been driving a minivan for over 10 years, and I think it may be time to get an SUV, but we’re not sure.
We drove a Lincoln MKC recently. I LOVED driving it. It was very fast, agile, and had plenty of zip to it. Unfortunately it was only a 5-seater so it isn’t one we would seriously consider buying for our family. The cargo area was spacious, so if you have two children it would easily fit carseats and stroller plus groceries and such.
The second moon roof in the back was a huge hit with my girls (it doesn’t open).
The only way I could back into a spot this tight is due to the back-up camera. I love it (!!) and it is available on most cars these days.
Overall, the Lincoln MKC met some of my must-haves:
- leather upholstery
- back-up camera
- push-button lift-gate
- USB connection
- heated seats
- power sun roof
- Fits in my garage very easily
And also offered a lot of ‘nice to haves’:
- Excellent speed and agility
- Heated steering wheel
- Lane control
It was missing for our family:
- 7 passenger seating
The price as driven was $56,000 which works out to about $841 per month over 7 years according the Lincoln Canada website.
